We'll start our meeting at 6pm with our beginner's track which is open to all but is targeted at newer programmers. The topic is Method Execution & Method Missing, presented by Tim Brenner.
The food and beverages will arrive by 6:30pm where you can eat, drink and mingle with your fellow Rubyists for 45 minutes while the rest of the crowd arrives.
Around 7:15pm we'll have our first presentation by Spike Ilacqua. He'll be talking about deploying Sinatra apps from a Github post receive hook.
When you have Ruby, does everything look like Rails?
It's often easy to see Ruby and Rails as synonymous and to try to fit projects into the Rails tool chain. Step outside the Rails box as we live code a Sinatra app to deploy the contents of a Git repo using Webhooks.
Our second speaker will be Erik Johnson from NCAR EOL talking about [masked]/ncareol.
The Collaborative Technologies & Metadata (CTM) group @ NCAR's Earth Observing Laboratory (EOL) develops web applications and associated backends in support of atmospheric-research field projects conducted in Colorado, the United States and internationally. I will present how the CTM group uses Git, GitHub and Bundler to optimize the development and deployment workflows for our Ruby and Rails applications.
